Taking you up to speed with your favourite media.
This is a series of YouTube videos released by Viva Reverie, aka IMMATOONLINK. Each video name includes the name of the source material followed by the phrase "But Really Really Fast" which is also the name of the author-created playlist for these videos.

Each video is characterized by Motor Mouthed characters drawn in extremely simple styles with little more than a torso and head with solid black eyes. Their bodies vibrate rapidly to indicate speech, and Floating Limbs appear when gestures are needed and disappear as soon as they've accomplished their purpose. Which is to say, you're not here for top-notch visuals, you're here for the Rapid-Fire Comedy.

The videos in this series are:

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - Thursday July 15th But Slightly Slower (released Jul 15, 2021)

Given that this series is based on summarizing existing works, expect Spoilers Off for those works. Also, no need to cover tropes that originate from those works.

Look out, it's Tropes Guy!

  • Adapted Out: Tertiary JoJo characters that don't add anything to the plot such as Poco, Smokey Brown, and Anne don't appear in their respective videos. They later appear in "Child Protagonist Purgatory" in "Diamond Is Unbreakable", alongside Emporio from Part 6, who is seen leaving to be Jolyne's sidekick.
  • Alternative Calendar: "Pikmin" has Olimar announce log entries with stardates involving special typographical characters. For example, the first scene is "stardate ampersand-power-percent-dollar sign-dollar sign."
  • Ambidextrous Sprite: The characters are simple enough that it usually doesn't matter, but a couple situations stand out:
    • Zig-zagged in "Battle Tendency" where the Column Fellows have numbers tattooed on their chests that need to read the same when they turn either way, but the mechanized half of cyborg Stroheim's head keeps switching sides.
    • Zig-zagged in "Stardust Crusaders" where DIO's moles are consistently on one side of his face, but things such as Jotaro's chain and Polnareff's shoulder strap switch sides.
    • Zig-zagged in "Toy Story" where the buttons on Buzz's chest stay on their respective sides no matter which way he faces, but Woody's badge switches sides when he turns.
  • Anachronism Stew:
    • From "Stardust Crusaders", which canonically takes place in the late 1980s:
    Judgement: Have you watched Aladdin?
    Polnareff: That ain't out yet.
    Judgement: Uh, then this might take a hot minute to explain.
    • And then in "Diamond Is Unbreakable", which takes place in 1999:
    Aya Tsuji: Have you watched Cinderella?
    Yukako: YEAH!?!
    Aya: ...Have you watched Spirited Awaynote ?
    Yukako: NO!?!
    Aya: ...Good!
  • Art Shift:
    • In "Stardust Crusaders", during the infamous "Oh? You're approaching me?" scene.
    • In "Diamond is Unbreakable", when Rohan points out the "Doesn't count" he wrote into Koichi to save him from the Bad Alleyway his hands are drawn with a lot more detail.
  • Author Appeal: Viva Reverie loves putting references to They Might Be Giants' songs in her videos.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Light, after his I Know You Know I Know confrontation with Near ends with the latter suddenly producing multiplying 'Death Notes'. For no apparent reason, this causes him and Mikami to blow up.
  • Brand X: The Pepsi brand that appears on the billboard in "Diamond is Unbreakable" is replaced with just the word "Logo."
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Literally in "Where Is Josuke?". Jotaro goes back in time through Viva Reverie's videos by moving a film reel upwards, all to locate the eponymous character.
  • Break the Cutie: Played for Laughs with Hayato, who frequently makes darkly hilarious observations about how traumatizing everything is for him.
    Hayato: Thank goodness for the adrenaline, it’s helping me ignore the settling PTSD!
  • Catchphrase: Yoshikage Kira says "Another day, another concerningly narrow escape!" anytime he believes he got the Jojo group of his trail.
  • Call a Smeerp a "Rabbit": Parodied in "Pikmin" where after Olimar names the Onion and Pikmin according to the lore from the game, he decides to call a "box-shaped" cardboard box a "box," the "blulblorb-shaped" creatures "Bulborbs," and the "shmurrowing shmagret-shaped" creatures "Burrowing Snagrets."
  • Call-Back: The "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" videos have a number of these that aren't quite prolific enough to count as running gags:
    • JoJo's mentor responds to an awkward question with "Your breathing is wrong!" and throws something at him.
      • Then the Stand screen description of Justice is "See where incorrect breathing GETS YOU!"
    • "And then (enemy) came out of the horse."
    • "I can't believe (other character) sacrificed himself and gave me all his power; what a dramatic twist of fate!" While the headgear from the deceased floats over to its new wearer.
    • Responding to "Look out, it's (noun) guy!" with "I have defeated (noun) guy." In "Battle Tendency" the noun changes despite referring to the same opponent, which confuses Joseph.
    • "Fire in the hole!" (throws grenade) "Oh my god."
    • Both Esidisi and Joseph (vs. Kars) get attacked, then comment on the attack and finish with "also: AAAAUUUUGGGGHHHH—!"
    • Two allies argue with "We should attack (the enemy) now!" "We should not!"
    • Two of Star Platinum's less-orthodox moves elicit reactions of, "Wow, I can't believe you (verb)ed at them so hard they exploded/imploded!" Jotaro responds, "Natural talent," the second time in a questioning tone.
    • "I have returned!" "No you haven't!" "Correct!" Poor Hol Horse.
    • When Jotaro is blasted against a wall in "Diamond is Unbreakable", he comments "So that's how it feels", since he beat down several people back in "Stardust Crusaders" to that same fate. And the scene itself resembles Kakyoin's defeat at Jotaro, down to the same screen and dark blue wall.
    • The descriptions for Star Platinum and The World both begin with "punchy boy", referring to how the two Stands are similar. In the next part, Josuke's Crazy Diamond, which looks awfully similar to The World, is described as a "punchy anti-entropy boy."
    • Similarly, the descriptions for Tower of Gray and Superfly read the same, "Not actually a fly," alluding to how the two Stands' names get compared a lot among the fandom.
    • In "Battle Tendency" and "Diamond is Unbreakable", Joseph ends up running with another person towards a ledge to stop a precious object from falling. The first instance had him try to beat Kars in getting the Red Stone of Aja in time on a snowy ledge. And the other has him and Josuke trying to save Achtung Baby from falling into a river, despite the former's old age getting to him at times.
    • "(Location name) or whatever" appears twice, first with "Notre Dame or whatever" in Part 2 and then "The Taj Mahal or whatever" in Part 3.
  • Call-Forward: The "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" videos also have quotes or moments alluding to future parts:
    • When Jonathan attempts to set dio on fire while the latter has recently become a vampire, dio responds with his goal to "take over the world first". But Jonathan interrupts him when he says "The World", because he's not supposed to say that yet.
    • As a kid, Joseph Joestar told some kidnappers that he wants to be Spider-Man when he grew up. This references him using his vine-like Stand to swing from buildings during the final battle against DIO. When that scene arrives in "Stardust Crusaders", Joseph lampshades it by saying that one should "always wish upon a star!"
    • At one point, DIO proclaims that he’s going to have sex with at least four people, setting up his various kids from Parts 5 and 6.
    • "Battle Tendency" at one point changes scenes with a "Meanwhile, in Venice" title card, followed by a few frames showing Part 5's Bruno Bucciarati and Trish Una.
    • When High Priestess catches the Stardust Crusaders in her mouth, she explains that her teeth cannot be destroyed, because "it is hard as diamonds, and diamond is unbreakab—" just as Star Platinum smashes them out.
    • In that same video, the final scene has Joseph announcing his plans to go home and see his wife, who he has a "healthy monogamous relationship with", only to awkwardly trail off.
    • "Diamond is Unbreakable" ends with nearly everyone at Morioh wishing a good flight to Actual Ghost Reimi Sugimoto as she ascends to a higher plane of existence. While this happens, Jotaro says the same thing to Koichi instead, and throws him into the sky with prepared luggage. And then, on the boat home with Joseph, Jotaro wants to go home to his wife, who he has a "healthy monogamous relationship with" ("show-off"). He is about to reveal other plans while Koichi is still flying and screaming. This alludes to Vento Aureo's beginning, where Jotaro sends Koichi to Italy in order to investigate Giorno Giovanna, the new protagonist.
    • Yuya's tie has the face of Speed King from Part 8.
    • When Hayato is getting out of "Child Protagonist Purgatory", Emporio can be seen behind Poco, Smokey, and Anne.
  • Casual Danger Dialogue: Most of what goes on in Five Nights at Freddy's But Really Really Fast - RED Version, by proxy of this incarnation of Mike being much more versed in how the game works, both inside and outside. It gets to the point where Freddy and Mike are actively taunting one another.
  • Cluster Bleep-Bomb: Actual Ghost Reimi Sugimoto gives Kira a long one when she finally meets him in the alleyway.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Five Nights at Freddy's But Really Really Fast - RED VERSION is about Mike being totally desensitized to everything happening around him, knowing exactly when to do at every moment, and having memorized the entire lore.
  • Curse Cut Short:
    • Light in "Death Note" when he first meets Ryuk, interrupted by a Cut to Another Scene with a news report.
    • Joseph in "Battle Tendency" arrives at his own funeral very much alive and his friends and family respond in this way. Joseph then tells them why he's definitely not dead.
    • Jotaro cuts his own curse short with his time stop in "Diamond is Unbreakable".
  • Defeat Equals Friendship:
    • "Stardust Crusaders" has this with Kakyoin and Polnareff, though they were only enemies in the first place due to forehead squids.
    Jotaro: I anticipate we'll either have a team of thirty by the end of this trek or we'll just so happen to coincidentally stop seeing forehead squids from this point forward.
    • All over the place in "Diamond is Unbreakable", much to Jotaro's exasperation when a massive group of former enemies shows up all claiming to be main characters.
  • Demoted to Extra: "Stardust Crusaders" does this with a number of enemies:
    • When the heroes encounter Forever's cruise liner, they decide to turn around and leave without engaging.
    • Arabia Fats doesn't even appear other than his info card. This time instead of a rock smashing through his mirrored hideout, it's Steely Dan who Jotaro launched in the previous scene.
    • The video glosses over Oingo and Boingo, including Hol Horse's team-up with Boingo. They simply fall over and explode without the heroes even noticing them.
    • Rohan doesn't even bother to engage Ken Oyanagi, instead snickering and leaving without a fight.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: The flashback to the man who inspired Josuke’s hairstyle:
    Not Josuke: Hello I’m not Josuke! I will I’m not Josuke save you I’m not Josuke!
    Narrator: He’s not Josuke.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: In "Diamond is Unbreakable". During the moment Hayato Kawajiri heads out of the "Child Protagonist Purgatory", another child wearing a baseball uniform can be seen behind the three with his face obscured. That kid is Emporio Alniño from Stone Ocean.
  • Easter Egg: The captions for the videos add extra jokes, such as describing sound effects in humourous ways, and even occasionally some extra trivia about the making of the videos (such as the caption for Mike drinking in "Five Nights at Freddy's (Red Version)" being "*a drinking sound effect, edited slightly because the original sounded kinda disgusting*").
  • Even the Subtitler Is Stumped: In "Battle Tendency", during the part where everyone is talking at once, the captions are just a long string of random letters, with "glhf actually transcribing this lol" somewhere in the middle.
  • Expospeak Gag: The start of the April Fools 2019 video has Light describe the Death Note (or at least the "Note" part) in this way.
    Light: I’ve collected the apparatus, that which can be used for storage of information. Or, alternatively, the collection of information if a secondary utensil is applied in an appropriate manner.
  • Floating Limbs: Character models don't have any visible arms or legs. If they need to gesture, a floating hand will appear from out of frame. If they need to be holding something, the object will hover near them.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: A common type of gag which encourages replays.
    • When "Battle Tendency" announces the next scene is in Venice, there's a split-second cutaway to Bucciarati and Trish from Golden Wind, which also has a plot arc in Venice.
    • The end of "Battle Tendency" has Joseph Joestar's gravestone read as follows:
      Joseph Joestar
      Born 1920
      Dead Definitely
    • "Battle Tendency" ends with a split-second of Old Joseph talking to Jotaro as a preview for "Stardust Crusaders".
    • During the Steely Dan section in "Stardust Crusaders", Dan demands a back rub from Jotaro. This occurs while Dan's Stand, Lovers, is inside Joseph, meaning that Joseph feels anything that Dan experiences. The back rub causes Joseph's eyes to become Blank White Eyes, since he suddenly feels more comfortable. This can be seen in the Split Screen containing Polnareff, Kakyoin and Joseph for a second or two.
    • After Gambler D'Arby is knocked out, his cards fly off the table, and if you look close enough, on one of those cards you can see Jack the Ripper's face from "Phantom Blood" on the Jack of Clubs card.
    • "Where Is Josuke?" previews "Diamond is Unbreakable" by having Jotaro find Josuke in 1999... after hopping through other Viva Reverie videos.
    • Just after the first time rewind in "Diamond is Unbreakable", Hayato walks out of the "Child Protagonist Purgatory", straight past Poco, Smokey and Anne, with Emporio just behind.
    • In "Stardust Crusaders", when Star Platinum is being explained, after "Punchy boy" the words "and then some" appear in very small text for a very brief moment.
  • Gambit Roulette: Kira even admits that he's playing most of his plans by ear and is really lucky everything went as well as it did.
    Kira: Another day, another concerningly narrow escape.
  • Graceful Loser: After Josuke fuses Angelo with a rock, he admits that he deserved that and offers some exposition for Josuke and Jotaro. He doesn't get very far before Josuke twists his words into a hair insult and messes him up further untill he can't talk, but points for trying.
  • Gratuitous Japanese:
    • Light in "Death Note" yells "Masaka!" when L announces the existence of a second killer.
    • DIO in "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" always announces his Time Stop with "ZA WARUDO!" per the meme. And then announces his steamroller attack with "ROADO ROLLAH DA!"
    • In "Battle Tendency" Stroheim yells "Sekai-ichi!" ("Number one in the world!") when he shoots his cyborg eye laser at Kars.
    • In "Stardust Crusaders" when Jotaro and Joseph are arguing about taking a plane, Jotaro yells at him with "Jiji!" (A casual term for "grandpa" which Jotaro often uses for Joseph in the source material.)
  • I Have a Family: Parodied. Angelo Katagiri tries to use this trope to prevent a beatdown from Josuke, but his intentions slip through this tactic.
    "Please, I can explain, I've got a wife and kids to murder."
  • Inconsistent Dub: Throughout "Stardust Crusaders," Jotaro's Catchphrase keeps changing to indicate different ways it's been translated: "Good grief," "How annoying," "What a bother," and so on. Until the very end where he says the original phrase, "Yare yare da ze."
  • Insane Troll Logic: Josuke has a tendency to twist others' words into insults about his hair.
    Jotaro: To assert dominance I shall now detail miscellaneous strands of your history to your face. *Ahem*
    Josuke's mind: Strands = Hair, History = Boring, Hair Boring = HAIR INSULT
    • Subverted with Rohan, as Josuke starts to twist "biographies" into an insult, only for Rohan to directly insult his hair instead.
  • Insistent Terminology: "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" repeatedly uses different terms for established concepts:
    • The Stone Masks are called "stabby blood masks."
    • Speedwagon is always called "Incidental Character Speedwagon." Even when "Stardust Crusaders" and "Diamond is Unbreakable" mention the organization named after him.
    • Ripple/Hamon is called "Magic Sunlight Punches."
    • In "Battle Tendency" any explicit mention of Nazis is censored with "German soldier" spoken in monotone.
    • The Hell Climb Pillar is the "Oil Pit of Shame".
    • The main opponents in "Battle Tendency" aren't Pillar Men, but Column Fellows. This even extends to addressing them as Column Fellow No.1/2/3, even after the last one tells Joseph, "My name is Kars, you cock!"
    • In "Battle Tendency" the Red Stone of Aja is just called "the special rock."
    • In "Stardust Crusaders" DIO's flesh buds are referred to as "forehead squids."
    • Highway Star is "Weird Feet Stand".
    • In "Diamond Is Unbreakable" Reimi and Arnold are constantly referred to as "actual ghosts".
  • Jumped at the Call: Rohan is quite eager to begin his role as a main character once he meets Actual Ghosts Reimi Sugimoto and Actual Ghost Arnold.
    Rohan: Come, Koichi! Adventure awaits!
    Koichi: You sure did take to the protagonist role rather quick, sir!
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall:
    • In "Diamond is Unbreakable," Masazo Kinoto scoots over the floor on his back for his scene, to avoid exposing his back (and Cheap Trick) to either Rohan or the audience.
    • In "Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan", when Mikitaka shows up at Rohan's table, Rohan gets in his face demanding to know who he is while also pointing off-screen and saying "DON'T YOU DARE CUT AWAY!"
  • Most Definitely Not a Villain: Enya's introduction.
    Enya: Hello, welcome to the worst town ever, I'm not evil, don't mind the zombies.
  • Motor Mouth: Everyone. Especially the main characters since they talk the most.
    • Good luck picking out more than a couple of phrases in the "Battle Tendency" scene where the "special rock" is about to slip over a precipice, as Joseph, Kars, and Caesar all announce their plans over each other.
    • The climax of Battle Tendency has Joseph achieve the impressive feat of describing what's about to happen to Kars in one breath.
    • Special mention goes to Captain Olimar in "Pikmin" as the only speaking role in the video (and pretty much never shuts up even for a second) even though he has no voice-overs in the games!
    • Inverted in the April Fools 2019 video where every character speaks slowly with an occasional pause between words. Except Ryuk who says his single line even faster than usual.
    • Mike in Night 7 of "Five Nights at Freddy's - RED VERSION":
    Mike: Check the cameras, Bonnie's gone, Foxy's chill, Where's Bonnie? Bonnie's at the door. Foxy's peeking, Freddy's gone, Chica's in the kitchen, Hello, Freddy! Can't check on Foxy until the door's closed, Can't spend time closing the door unless Chica's here, Hello, Chica! Foxy's gone, running in the hall, close the door, Chica's gone, Foxy's done, Bonnie's here, Bonnie's gone, Bonnie's here, Bonnie's gone, having a good time, Freddy?
    Freddy: No.
    Mike: Of course not. Chica's here, Foxy's gone, or out of Pirate's Cove, therefore here!
    Freddy: I'll love when you make a mistake.
    Mike: If I make a mistake. Hi, Bonnie!
    • Yoma in "Thus Spoke Kishibe Rohan" talks a lot about getting more muscles, either in this fashion or in Pokémon Speak.
  • My Nayme Is: Dio's descriptions in "Phantom Blood" and "Stardust Crusaders" note that his name is case sensitive. In the former video it's consistently stylized as "dio" and in the latter video as "DIO"; in other media, "DIO" typically refers specifically to his "Stardust Crusaders" appearance.
  • Nice Hat: The tall hats worn by Loggins and Messina in "Battle Tendency" and Terence T. D'Arby in "Stardust Crusaders" are all exaggerated so they extend past the edge of the screen. The first two are even referred to as "tall hat guys."
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Shinobu's response to Kira declaring his desire to kill her is "what a turn-on!"
  • No Indoor Voice: dio and Yukako do not speak quietly, but are rather the opposite.
  • Only Sane Man: Jotaro during "Diamond is Unbreakable", as he has to deal with Josuke, Koichi, and Okuyasu all the time.
  • Precision F-Strike: Jotaro utters one in "Stardust Crusaders" after Steely Dan reveals his Stand's trap.
    • In "Diamond Is Unbreakable" Hayato also gives one to the person calling the house on the third time loop we see.
  • Rapid-Fire Comedy: The whole series is built on this. Viewers will get a lot of Replay Value out of going back to catch what they missed the first time (or even the second or third).
  • Red Herring: In the "Stardust Crusaders" video. With hints such as DIO having a "date at 10 o'clock", his chanting of the phrase "rhinoceros beetle", and Joseph claiming that DIO is finally dead, you would expect a Tempting Fate ending making a Gilligan Cut towards the events leading up to Stone Ocean. Further emphasised by the fact that the first two JoJo videos end with the same sort of Flash Forward, and yet it never happens here.
  • RPG-Mechanics Verse: A very minor example, but in the Battle Tendency video, when Joseph and Lisa Lisa try to manipulate the Column Fellows, they're told to "roll for [charisma/deception]", and when the die comes up a natural 20 both times, the Column Fellows are forced to reluctantly concede.
  • Running Gag:
    • In general, there are several cases where dramatic tension is abridged by having a character come to a conclusion, then in the very next sentence (if not the same breath) backpedal with a "no" and then immediately backpedal yet again with a "yes."
    • A few from the "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" videos:
      • "At least dio's dead now. Definitely." "It turned out that dio was not actually dead."
      • "Roll for [charisma/deception/etc]." "Twenty!"
      • "Look out, it's (noun) guy!"
      • The descriptions for several Stand abilities in a row are simply "Morph dirt" (Judgement), "Morph mineral" (High Priestess), and "Morph sand... Car" (The Fool). After Geb breaks the pattern there's "Morph faaaace" (Khnum), and Earth Wind and Fire's description from "Diamond is Unbreakable" is "Morph- wait, he's a what? Okay... Hold on-"
      • A character saying "Get my good side!" when getting their picture taken. When Rohan discovers Cheap Trick, Masazo's reaction is "NO! THAT'S MY BAD SIDE!"
      • "Morioh Cho Radio" appears randomly in "Diamond is Unbreakable" during ominous or dramatic moments.
      • Asking to be a main character. Played in minor with Kakyoin and Polnareff in "Stardust Crusaders", but almost every Stand user who's done a Heel–Face Turn in "Diamond is Unbreakable" asks to be a main character, and by the point Jotaro announces the pursuing of Kira he is shocked to find an entire group of over ten self-proclaimed main characters, including Joseph, Yukako, Tonio, Koichi, Okuyasu, Mr. Nijimura (the 'goopy father'), Josuke, Rohan, Hazamada, and Aya Tsuji. Note that less than half of these are actual main characters from the source material, and Josuke explicitly rejected Hazamada's offer to become a main character on the basis that he was "'this' close to actual murder."
  • Rule of Three:
    • A minor Running Gag in "Diamond is Unbreakable" is Kira's proclamation of “Another day, another concerningly narrow escape”, after barely avoiding getting exposed. The third time he says it, Kira remembers mid-proclamation that this time he didn’t escape.
  • Same Character, but Different: Blue Version Mike acts like a normal yet paranoid person on the job, since Phone Guy gives him specific yet vague information and doesn't give him reliable information on the robot's attacking patterns, plus, he is afraid of being killed by the fuzzy animal robots he is watching over his shift. Red Version Mike, on the other hand acts like a hardened FNAF Veteran, ignoring and muting Phone Guy's calls due to him acting like the tragedies that happened here are "Common Knowledge at this point" and isn't really scared of the scary robot animals since he recognized their attacking patterns and facing Freddy's potential jumpscare without fear, if he'd been lucky enough to survive til Six A. M. and winning the week and rubbing it in Freddy's face.
  • Sequel Escalation: "Phantom Blood" is 3.5 minutes long. "Battle Tendency" is almost double that at just over 6 minutes. "Stardust Crusaders" is double that at 12 minutes. "Diamond is Unbreakable" is only a few seconds longer than the previous video, clocking at 13.5 minutes. Helps explain why the time between the first and second videos was about 1 month, the time between the second and third was 6.5 months, and the time between the third and fourth was 9 months.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Simultaneous Arcs: A split-screen is used to show the events of one Thursday in "Diamond is Unbreakable", with characters and narration talking over each other as they deal with various problems, Stands, and fish research.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: Once Jotaro’s group reunites after dealing with Mariah and Alessi:
    Jotaro, Polnareff, Joseph, Avdol: You wouldn’t believe what we just had to deal with!
    Polnareff, Joseph, Avdol: It was weirdly sexual!
    Jotaro: ...what?
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Commonly used to show someone being utterly trounced. Unless Yoshikage Kira is involved, then the explosions are quite literal.
  • Take That!:
    • During the Germans' introductions in "Battle Tendency", every time someone is about to say 'Nazi', the video pauses, the speaker's face is replaced by the demonitization symbol, and the narrator chimes in with 'German soldiers'. She uses that phrase with utter boredom to mock that website's sensitive demonitization system.
    • In "Stardust Crusaders", on Horus' Eye Catch, the description is "Under Pressure but bad".
    • To finish off "Stardust Crusaders", the "To Be Continued" arrow appears while the narrator badly sings "Walk Like an Egyptian". As she tries to justify that the show stopped using "Roundabout" as the ending song, another arrow appears with the first note of that song playing. This shows how that song is essentially synonymous with the franchise, and how no other tune can compete against that.
    • After taking silent potshots at Poco, Smokey and Anne for having no plot significance in their parts by not including them in these videos, "Diamond is Unbreakable" finally features them in the same scene... set in a place called "Child Protagonist Purgatory".
  • Talking Is a Free Action: Joseph Joestar is able to pull off his "The next thing you will say is..." gag involving a paragraph of run-on sentences without being interrupted by the enemy.
  • Tempting Fate: Many characters do this by saying things are going well or hoping not to encounter something, usually just before they're contradicted.
  • That Came Out Wrong: Jotaro spends the entirety of "Stardust Crusaders" practicing his well-known retort to DIO, "Can't beat the shit out of you without getting closer," but keeps messing it up. When the scene in question arrives, Jotaro says, "I have to get closer before I can shit on you— ahh, dammit!"
  • This Cannot Be!: This happens in "Battle Tendency" during Stroheim's battle against Kars.
    Stroheim: You cannot beat me, I have super gun bullets that definitely cannot be deflected or cut with your sword arm!
    [Kars cuts the bullets with his sword arm.]
    Stroheim: HOW CAN YOU CUT MY BULLETS WITH YOUR SWORD ARM?!
  • Trauma Conga Line: Pretty much all of Hayato's screentime is him being put through horribly traumatizing situation after horribly traumatizing situation.
  • Unreadably Fast Text: The info cards for both Avdol and DIO in "Stardust Crusaders" and Rohan in “Diamond Is Unbreakable” when explaining their Stand's special abilities.
